Currently thankful to Bethesda for:
Making two the best games ever: Morrowind and Oblivion (along with their expansion packs). Note that I haven't tried Arena or Daggerfall and that I probably won't, but only because I don't like playing older games.
Currently mad at Bethesda for:
Making fun of people of poor drawing capability!
Not flagging the dwarf or whatever he is in some God forsaken cave in Bloodmoon as an essential character, causing me to fail the Bloodmoon main quest. The damn dwarf had a name, but as I killed about 100 identical dwarves before getting to him, I wasn't really looking out for that.
Making snow blizzards in Bloodmoon, slowing my, at the time very weak, computer and making me wait several days in a cave with a bunch of bears, wolves and werewolves, just so I could go on.
Not fixing the bug with items jumping all over the place, among other things ruining my master plan of having a sword on top of my chandelier in Rosethorn Hall (falls down every time I enter the room; oh and yes, I am very much aware how weird my obsession with decorating my House is :P, however this is nothing... I did the same thing in Morrowind, and the only way you could move items there was pickup, drop, pickup, drop)
Making Oblivion more linear than Morrowind. For one, the conversations were much better in Morrowind, although I do understand that this is because of voice acting... However, one thing I will hardly ever forgive them is removing Levitation and Jump (ahh, the good old days of jumping up to the clouds looking for those dragons Maiq lied about with a custom-made spell... :) )
Character: Lisan al Gaib
Currently working on:
Further decorating of my bedroom in Rosethorn Hall
Completing all Daedric quests (10/15 done)
* *mutters* All gone... Every single one... Sob... Damned be the scriptured end of Oblivion gates! Now I can never get the Absorb Health Sigil Stone... So beautiful... So many uses... *Turns to you with a crazed, but sad, prophetic look on his face* Beware you who dislike the planes of Oblivion, for many riches you have not even dreamed possible lie there!
** Or so the game says... All I know is that I've bought at least a 1000 lockpicks so far... Probably even a lot more.
*** I actually bite the necks of only a few selected people... Repeatably though :). Preferences: Female, Imperial/Breton/Redguard/Nord. Most of the time it's Eyja. Dislikes: Orcs (only in emergencies... tastes horrible) :)
**** Also had to induce vampirism through testinghall... No other way worked at the time (post by 126.96.36.199; I think the problem got fixed in the patch though, I’ve seen some mention of vampirism bug fixes). I've even had to use the Turn me into a full vampire stone, as the other one had no effect either (apart from removing all feelings of guilt for using that "cheat" :) ).
Vampiric Longsword (Deadric Longsword enchanted with Absorb Health 22 for 1 second on Strike, Charge: 1600, uses: 19)
